Atleti will have to pay 25 million if they want Otamendi
It seems as though Nicolás Otamendi's days at Manchester City are numbered, with the Argentinian centre-back being strongly linked to Diego Simeone's Atlético Madrid.
After four years at Manchester City, Otamendi could be set for a return to La Liga this summer - a league that he already knows well from his time at Valencia.
The 31 year-old has played 170 times and scored 8 goals for Manchester City since joining in 2015, and now La Liga's second placed side would like to bring him in to replace the departing Diego Godín.
According to 'AS', City have already made their demands clear, and 'Los Colchoneros' will need to offer 25 million euros to prise away the defender from Pep Guardiola's side.
Although he is valued at 30 million euros, it seems Jorge Mendes is negotiating his exit for a lesser fee as he looks to move away to get more gametime.
Furthermore, this deal could pave the way for Manchester City to sign Atlético's 22 year-old midfielder Rodri who, according to 'A Bola', is one of the Premier League leaders' top targets this summer.
